Algebra 1

I am a Connecticut certified teacher and have taught and tutored algebra for the past six years. At Bedford Middle School I successfully taught 6th, 7th, and 8th graders algebra and math study skills. I have also tutored high school students in algebra 1 for the past 6 years. One of my strengths is that I can always find another way to explain math concepts if my student is having trouble with the way I explain something. Because math is concrete and conceptual at the same time, there are many ways to delve into concepts of algebra, thus many ways to trigger understanding.


American History

I am a CT Certified Social Studies teacher. I have my undergraduate BA in History and Economics, University of California, Berkeley. I have 6 years of experience teaching and tutoring high school students in US History, English, Composition, Writing. I tutor for standardized tests, including SAT, ACT, AP History (US, European, World). My interests include Revolutionary War, WWII, and Vietnam era films, literature, memoirs and lectures.

Reading

I have tutored all levels of Reading, Writing and Math in kindergarten through 6th grade for the past 6 years and am a Connecticut certified teacher. I have worked with great success in Norwalk and Westport public schools, particularly in reading and math. I am familiar with the struggles of elementary students and understand the importance of having a confident, "can-do" attitude in school from the start.

I possess a mastery of a broad range of academic content: Grades K-6: Reading, Essay Writing, Math, Science, Social Studies, Interview Skills (private school admission), Study Skills, Executive Function, and Reducing Test Anxiety. I also have skills in addressing needs of students with learning issues including Autism, Asperger?s Syndrome, ADD, ADHC, Dyslexia, Reading issues (decoding, processing, vocabulary, etc) and low self-confidence.


Writing

I am a Connecticut certified teacher with 6 years of experience tutoring and teaching writing to 4-12th grades. I have a great track record teaching writing to students grades 4-12. I help them learn to organize their thoughts, conduct research, create an outline for their essay, write with correct grammar and edit their writing. I teach them to write without anxiety because they will know what they want to say and will learn how to organize their essays, as well as express themselves smoothly and eloquently. The result is a confident communicator writing in an organized fashion who is comfortable expressing original and personal ideas. In addition, my approach is ideal for standardized test essay writing (such as SAT, ACT, and GED) which demands organization, substance and correct grammar. My writing credentials include 14 years as a professional writer in business, journalism, marketing and public relations. I have also developed and written resumes professionally for the last 10 years.
